    I am wondering since CES 2011 Consumer Electronics Show is only on January 6-9 if Microsoft or AT&T, T-Mobile will be announcing new phone models since that is less than 60 days away.

    Not only phone models, will they announce the first WP7 software update?

    Any thoughts?

    While I wouldn't call models launched only 65 days from initial launch a 2nd generation at all I would think that by June 2011 you'd have a major couple of firmware updates of the WP7 OS...

    I think we will see some CDMA action around that time frame, hopefully alot more than the disappointing HTC 7 Pro coming to Sprint.

    I would also guess we will hear about, if not have, the first software update by CES 2011.

    I just want to see anything with a physical keyboard and gloabl roaming on Sprint. Those are my only requirements.

    I'm hoping they announce a few CMDA phone's. In particular something like the Focus on Verizon. I know Samsung has tweeted that they are working on something for Verizon so let's hope it's even better than their first foray into WP7 (dual core processor, lots of memory and Superamoiled screen!! I cannot wait!!

    Unfortunately, I am starting to get the impression that we are not going to see any WP7 LTE announcements at CES. Perhaps something like the exiting handsets. We already know the HTC trophy will be one of the first VZ WP7 phones, which hardly impressive.

    I am really hoping when the WP7 phones launch on VZ they will launch something with a FF camera. TI would be so disappointing to see that they are already out of date upon launch.

    there hasn't been any big leaks of WP7 devices which is either a good sign or a bad one.. im hoping for some sprint love and a good sized update along with dates for future updates..

    I found that to be odd too. Zero leaks about anything WP7 related.

    Has me really concerned. I really don't want to have to wait several more months for a non-joke WP7 device on Sprint.

    Yeah, that was the implication. WP7 CDMA update as of early February, although that seems pretty reasonable as CES is used a platform to announce new products not deliver them same day. As an aging Palm Pre owner I can't wait to get my hands on a new Sprint compatible WP7 device.

    the windows phone fan page on facebook is advertising to watch steve ballmer's keynote live at 9:30 EST... I'm taking that to mean something good and exciting!

    So Balmer still used the phrase "first half of 2011" regaring WP7 CDMA phones. Somebody pease tell me that he's just playing hard to get and really meant by next month.

    I agree.

    I know they may be waiting for MWC to show off some things but they really needed to have a good CES in the mobile department and they just let android still the show.

    I thought it was ok. Those new spiffy android phones were announced, not released. 4G phones not really booming becuase 4G isn't available in many areas. But I'm hoping the CDMA phones get realeased soon, so that the WP7 user base can get a major following.

    1st half of 2011 is insane. If you heard what was said he said that as soon as the updates drop, that is when the phones would be released. Now outside of performance upgrades and copy/paste what else could the update offer that Sprint and Verizon are saying they will wait for those updates.

    It offers support for CDMA networks. Sprint and VZW would love to release WP7 devices right now, but they will not work until the update is released.

    I was also pretty disappointed though, not one new phone announcement from either Microsoft or any device manufacturer. Since the HTC 7 Pro will not work for me, guess I am going to be waiting a long time.

    You are looking for global roaming right? What else don't you like about the Pro 7? I did research but I would like more perspective on the phone.
